    Personally, I think the old guys are the smart ones here. Silence is a good thing.

    The PGL is giving players Power with a huge negotiating tool. This could Be a time top players take advantage of the interest to establish some new arrangement with the tour, such as some pay for travel and stuff.

    I’m surprised the tour still get away with no appearance fees for anyone, no travel assistance, no charter from one event to the next even thou there are some events that do it; also still treat caddies as second class even thou many are looked at as teammates or even mentors to the players.

    But yea The biggest concern for players with the PGL is it only feeds 48 of them. Any player could
    Fall off that list…what do they do then?

    It’s no surprise this Thing is dead already, but it’s clear to me tour players as a whole could learn from the old guard that you never know what silence may get you and contemporaries.

    Rory is much appreciated but imo he needs to be careful he does not let the media make him talk too much. Everyone wants to know what number 1 thinks but being the best player in the world makes no one all knowing or immune to exhaustion.

    As Mr Buffett might say, Focus on what you do well Rory.
